An active knowlegde of :Specific prerequisites for this course:
Students must have a credit for plant physiology and morphology (Form and Function).
2. Learning outcomes
This course tackles up-to-date advanced research in plant development. Specific skills are trained:
- Find relevant information in given literature
- integrate and summarize relevant informations
- make a relevant literature search
- select important information
- present relevant findings in a strict timespan
- How to discuss data
- Have a profound knowledge of the most recent advances in plant physiology and functional morphology
3. Course contents
: Tackles vegetative and generative development, physiology of seeds, senescence, regeneration and stress resistence.
: Typical features of a plant cell (vacuole, cell wall, plasmodesmata,...) and their characteristics are discussed in the most recent context of plant research output. We investigate the role of a plant cell in frame of the function of tissues e.g. during water transport in seed plants.

6. Study material
For each topic, a selection op papers and chapters in the studybook "Plant Physiology" by Taiz and Zeiger (4de editie, uitgeverij Sinauer, ISBN 0-87893-856-7) is given as a start.
Starting from this information, the student has to make a literature search and should summarize the relevant information.
The following study material can be studied on a voluntary basis:
Starting from the conpulsory reading, the student has to make a literature search and should summarize the relevant information. The recommanded reading is therefor specific for each individual topic.
